The Philadelphia Phillies, who are in the market for a corner outfielder, are very interested in free agent Delmon Young, says Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com.
Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. did not deny the club’s interest in Young, who hit .267 with a .707 OPS for the Detroit Tigers last season and is coming off ankle surgery. Young, who made $6.75 million last season, spent most of last season as a designated hitter and has been mentioned recently as a candidate for the DH role in Tampa Bay.
